Neil DeGrasse Tyson Explains How on Earth Batman Could Possibly Beat Superman
Let's face it: we all know Batman v Superman isn't really a fair fight. Superman is essentially a demi-god, while Batman is just a rich guy with some expensive gadgets and a cool car. But the show must go on, and Batman and Superman need to go head-to-head next March somehow. Luckily, trusty astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson is here to tell us how Batman could ever stand a chance against the Man of Steel:
In the above video from Tech Insider, Tyson freely admits that a purely physical fight between Batman and Superman would not be well-matched:
To be fair, there's also Kryptonite, but Tyson goes in a different direction, basically claiming that Batman could take advantage of the ill will society now has towards Superman after the events of Man of Steel and use public opinion to gain a moral victory over Superman:
He's probably referring to Batman v Superman specifically, especially since he seems to be involved in the movie and would be privy to the basics of the plot, but funnily enough, this is basically the argument for Batman's victory in any "who would win in a fight, Batman or Superman" argument. While Superman clearly has the upper hand physically, Batman definitely wins in the "court of public opinion" in general.
Batman v Superman comes out on March 25, 2016.
